Darwin Stalin's story

Darwin Stalin, age 25, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in Ventanas in the Los Riós province. He is a member of the La Union communal bank. It is located in the Aguas Frías district, which is In the Ventanas canton. This communal bank devotes itself to growing short cycle corn, rice, and beans.

Darwin Stalin grows corn, and he also works husking corn for other people. He makes his purchases and sales in Ventanas.

He is requesting the loan to buy urea, insecticides, liquid weed killer, and fertilizers. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy liquids for pest infestations. The challenges he faces are the infestations from worms and “alangostas”. His dream is to be able to buy a farm.

In his free time he likes to go shopping.
